On August 4, Meritor, Inc. announced that Hino will be evaluating and testing Meritor's ePowertrain for its development path to zero emissions vehicles (ZEV).
Meritor has been a long-standing key supplier for Hino Motors Manufacturing North America for dressed axles on its medium-duty truck models.
With this new collaboration both companies look to expand advanced, electrified drive systems to further zero-emissions development.
Examples of Meritor's electrified solutions include its all-electric, fully integrated, ePowertrain for medium- and heavy-duty commercial vehicles.
Key advantages of Meritor's ePowertrain over remote mount systems include tighter turning radius, increased room between frame rails for additional battery capacity, and lighter weight (up to 800 lbs.).
